Fighting Government Device Searches at the Border

Fighting Government Device Searches at the Border

What happens if you travel across the border and the federal government demands to search your phone or tablet without suspicion of wrongdoing? Warrantless device searches at the border are on the rise, affecting everyone from activists to journalists to business travelers. But the border is not a Constitution-free zone, and advocates are fighting back. Join ACLU attorneys and a media law expert to learn more about the current fight, what you can do, and how companies can protect their users.
